imagery intelligence

Intelligence derived from the exploitation of collection by visual photography, infrared sensors, lasers, electro-optics, and radar sensors such as synthetic aperture radar wherein images of objects are reproduced optically or electronically on film, electronic display devices, or other media. Also called IMINT. See also intelligence; photographic intelligence.

* Aerial Reconnaissance-Low (ARL)-provides day/night all-weather airborne SIGINT collection and analysis capability; COMINT, FLINT, and MASINT collection capabilities simultaneously employed against separate targets and fused with IMINT sensor data acquired from unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) or other sensors to provide an integrated view of a single target; sensor to sensor cueing for immediate servicing of targets.
